I’ve recently (finally!) started watching the brilliant FX show Louie, which happens to be written, directed by and starring one of my favourite people in the world, Louis CK. I marathoned season 1 and at the end of the final episode, this great song came on that I just had to share.
Apparently everyone was asking Louie what it was since the credits don’t list it and it doesn’t register on Shazaam, so he was kind enough to post it. Turns out Louie wrote the lyrics himself, and got local NYC musician James Maddock to perform it in the recording. It’s basically the perfect encapsulation of how it feels to have a really shitty night.
James Maddock has a beautiful raspy voice that allows for the requisite empathy the track requires.
